Prayer Groups are Pure Hedonism

And when they had prayed, the place where they had gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak the word of God with boldness (Acts 4:31)

John Piper on corporate prayer groups:
  • God's hand is not shortened by the size of the prayer meeting.
  • There are hundreds of you who don't regularly pray with other believers... you have just considered it to be unimportant... I just want to plead with you that you are cutting yourself off from extraordinary blessing. And I would like you to have it... It's pure Christian hedonism.

Many of us who are indeed "chicken by nature" gather here each Lord's Day at 5pm - including this week! - to pray for boldness and for the world. Come and receive.
